Make York’s Orbital Cycle Route a real cycling superhighway
York’s Orbital Cycle Route opened in 2012 and is a
circular strategic cycle route around the city delivered by City of
York Council in response to feedback from York residents wanting
quiet mainly off-road routes between the inner and outer ring road.
The Orbital Cycle Route is designed to allow users to ‘hop
on’ and then ‘hop off’ to destinations around the
The Orbital Cycle Route, which is depicted on the York Cycle Route Map, begins and ends at Millennium Bridge. From there, the route heads west through South Bank and skirts around The Knavesmire before crossing Hob Moor. It then continues north along quiet residential streets in Acomb before crossing the River Ouse at Clifton Bridge.
From Clifton Green, the route proceeds up Water Lane and Kingsway North, taking advantage of the off-road cycle path, before heading onto Crichton Avenue. It then joins up with the off-road Sustrans cycle track, known as the Foss Islands Route, and continues onto James Street before reaching the junction with Lawrence Street. The route then returns to Millennium Bridge from the east via quiet residential roads close to The Barbican and along the riverside cycle track at New Walk from the Blue Bridge.
